Finished For Now...

Hi There!

It sure feels like it's been a long time since I posted, but I guess it was earlier in the week. My dad left on Tuesday and the girls and I have been keeping ourselves pretty busy since then. Add to that our internet has been going down intermittently. I think it's good we've been busy (and out of the house) so I haven't gotten too grumpy about the internet part.

I thought you might like to see the results of the moving and cleaning up of my "new again" craftroom. Remember I used to be in here, moved into the house (not all this stuff got moved into the house though) and just moved back out to the garage room because I was feeling too cramped in the corner I was allotted in the house. With my dad's visit, I wasn't able to finish up until yesterday. Well, I don't think I'm completely done yet, but it's done for now. Good enough to start creating again, anyway...
This is what you see as you walk into the craftroom.
Here's what you see as you step in and look to the left. You may notice I've done some shifting of things. I put two bookshelves back into this room, so I could have a place for books and things. You can see one of the shelves at the end of the table. To make room for the other shelf, I moved those tall modular shelves onto the table. I also moved the bulletin boards up to accomodate the shelf shifting. I'm hoping to get some shelves on the wall eventually. For now the bulletin boards fill up the space.
Here's the view walking to my work area.
What it looks like at my work area.

This shelf unit is what you see to my right as I'm sitting at my work table. The garage has a large window which lets in good light during the day.
And here's what I see from my seat. I've deliberately cut off the doorway into the little office (to the right of the metal shelf unit) because it's crammed with Steve's stuff. I need to move things around to be able to close that door. The shelf unit needs reorganizing(maybe even some fabric to make it prettier), but it'll do for the moment.
The other door on the left opens to the rest of the garage.

I'm relieved to have this heavy moving phase done and can modify and adjust as needed from here on out.

I even did some creating today...come back a bit later to see what I made.

So cool to see your space Jeanne! even cooler that you have so much 'stuff' LOL I don't feel so bad ha ha.
I love seeing where people are when they craft.
Sorry that your Dad had gone already. I know how that feels.
I am loving that fabric/table covering? that you looks like a stamped design :-)
Thanks for the glimpse into your life GF!

Your room and all that space looks like bliss to me!!! Good for you!

My little "remodel" hasn't happened yet. Maybe after the wedding. Perhaps after I win the lottery. LOL.

Can't wait to see what you've created!

I am so jealous. My scraproom is my formal dining room. I am trying to keep it clean and it is soooo hard.

Looks WONDERFUL! Everything at your fingertips - it's my idea of heaven! I'm so glad you shared!

Jeanne, no wonder you've been AWOL from our daily chats! (Besides Dad being there, etc...) I love what you've done! It's all neat and organized and ready to go!

You did a fabulous job! (I saw what it looked like in person before the clean up, you've worked hard !!!)

All I can say is WOW!! You have been busy!! I wish I had an air conditioner in my little room, but alas, my DH refuses to put one in. It would make the room darker, so perhaps he is right. I'm reorganizing my room too, but to do that, I have to take EVERYTHING out!! I may be done by the year 2012!! LOL LOL Where did you get the little side baskets for your big shelf to hold the ribbon. I have that shelf too, and the addition would be perfect!! Let me know. SOrry I have been MIA.. so much going on. You would think that being retired would give me more time to do stuff...but I had a stint with the census ( they are doing the mapping right now so they are prepared for next year and I'm on the team) and also a trip to Minnesota. Busy busy. This is why I may not get my room done right away. LOL Have a good one, and thanks for sharing. I love reading your posts.

Awesome room, Jeanne! I bet you are glad to have your own space again.

Jen said...
